Analog Devices (ADI) announces the introduction of the Power by LinearTMLTM8002, a step-down DC/DC μModule® (power module) regulator with 40V rated input voltage (42V abs max) and 2.5A continuous ( 3.5A peak output current in a 6.25mm x 6.25mm x 2.22mm BGA package. The LTM8002 contains a switching regulator controller, power switch, inductor, and other support components. Only a large capacity input and output capacitor and two resistors are needed to complete the design.
Recently, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) announced that it has introduced a new series of direct water-cooled wirewound resistors, DCRF, which provides ultra-high power consumption of 9000W with little external radiation. The Vishay MCB DCRF series devices are available in six compact sizes from 38 mm × 178 mm to 38 mm × 410 mm. This series is designed to save space and increase reliability compared to standard wire wound resistors.
